Adding Personal Folders to Outlook with Exchange Server account

I set up Outlook Express 2003 with an Exchange Server account and then added two IMAP accounts. All work well, but I have just noticed that I do not have a "Personal Folders" section. How can I add Personal Folders to the Exchange and IMAP accounts. My goal is to have a "private" calendar and a "public"  calendar.

Does "cache locally" play into all of this?

If you are using IMAP then by default all mails are going to personal folder.

If you don't know whether you're using a Microsoft Exchange Server or a Personal Folders file, you can check your default delivery location. Select Tools, E-mail Accounts, View or change existing email accounts to display the E-mail Accounts dialog box
If your delivery location is set to Personal Folders, you're using a Personal Folders file. Account types of IMAP, POP, and HTTP all use a Personal Folders file as their default delivery location.

If you're using an Exchange Server, you can still specify your delivery location to be your Personal Folders file, but doing so will remove all Outlook items from the server.
